Peace and Permaculture:  Food Forestry for Ecological and Cultural Regeneration presented by Dave Jacke, Edible Forest Gardens Author
Sunday April 10, 2011 2-4 PM
Univ. of Rochester Interfaith Chapel
Co-Sponsored by: 
MK Gandhi Institute for <>  Nonviolence, and
Barefoot Edible Landscape  <> & Permaculture

What can the forest teach us about ecological food production?  About the practice of nonviolence?  About how to redesign our culture so that we humans heal our ecosystems and communities, rather than destroying them?  Healthy forests maintain, fertilize, and renew themselves, naturally.  When we understand how these amazing properties emerge from forest ecosystem structure and function, we can apply that knowledge to the design of “food forests” that mimic natural forests while growing food, fuel, fiber, fodder, fertilizers, farmaceuticals, and fun!  With forest gardens as our teachers, we can also use the same principles to design human social systems that allow us each to fully be ourselves while interconnecting in functional ways.  This can create a culture of free human beings that builds community health and well-being without force or violence.  This talk by Edible Forest Gardens author Dave Jacke introduces the vision of forest gardening with some scientific background, a few living examples, and a sampling of some useful perennial edibles you can use in your own garden.  It also summarizes how the ecology of forests can guide the practical application of nonviolence in regenerating our culture.  Suggested minimum donation $10; no one turned away for lack of funds.

Location: River Level
